Waiting on Wednesday: The Falling Machine by Andrew Mayer

>>Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Welcome back to another installment of Waiting on Wednesday,  hosted by Breaking the Spine. You know I love superhero related stories and this one seem to be one in a steampunk setting.

Title: The Falling Machine (The Society of Steam)
Author: Andrew Mayer
Publication Date: May 24, 2011

From the author's website:

In 1880 women aren’t allowed to vote, much less dress up in a costume and fight crime. But nineteen year-old socialite Sarah Stanton still dreams of becoming a hero. Her opportunity arrives in tragedy when Dennis Darby, the leader of the Society of Paragons—New York’s greatest team of gentlemen adventurers—is murdered right before her eyes. To uncover the truth behind the assassination, Sarah joins forces with Darby’s greatest creation; the amazing mechanical man known as The Automaton. Together they begin to unmask a conspiracy at the heart of the Paragons that reveals the world of heroes and high-society is built on a crumbling foundation of greed and lies. But it is only when Sarah comes face to face with the megalomaniacal villain behind the murder that she will discover if she has the courage to sacrifice her life of privilege and truly become the hero she has always wanted to be.
